    Centaurs

    Hey all.

    I would like your opinions on including centaur models in my WoC army, using the rules for knights and horsemen.
    I'm very fond of the centaurs' role in greek mythology - especially their 'king' Chiron - and I would love to field an army of warriors with slightly greek-themed looks (crests on helms etc.) and have centaurs accompany them.

    As I see it, there is nothing wrong with this approach rules wise, as cavalry is always treated as a single model anyway. When attacking the mounts attack makes sense as horse 'kicks' from the centaur; and when being attacked it is always done against the riders stats anyway (as far as I remeber - not played for a few years).

    I know this idea is in no way original, but would like to know what you think of it, and most important: if you can come up with a situation where it would conflict with the rules?

    Thanks in advance =)

    I don't see a problem with it, there's no way they could be mistaken for centigors anymore. As long as you point out what they are. Any representing knights will need to have heavier armour etc than marauder horsemen standins, but I assume you've thought of all that.

    I think it is a superb idea mate , simply use the knight and marauder models to get the wysywyg on armor, and just go for it!!
